Philodendron melanochrysum is a striking rare plant with exquisite foliage that becomes more and more beautiful as the plant matures. The huge mature plants we are selling here have gorgeous long velvety shined leaves with beautiful, pale green veins. Philodendron melanochrysum or black gold philodendrons is one of the best climbing foliage plants, with large heart-shaped leaves that are typically 20-30cm long. When grown in ideal conditions they can grow even longer. One of the most popular Philodendron on Instagram, it just gets better and better with age.
These plants aren’t hard to look after, they will thrive in the shade which makes them ideal if you have no experience of looking after houseplants. It also means they aren’t hard to situate in your home, they will love any corner of any room really, in the sun or in the shade.
Philodendrons would make a great houseplant gift for friends or family - surprise them with rainforest style! Low maintenance and an excellent choice for anyone new to growing houseplants. This plant will thrive as long as it's water only when it's completely dry and kept in a warm and sunny spot.
